The Clientele – Porcelain lyrics

A darker garden this though pale with beauty
In the louring of the rain
How I long to break the silence
Where the moths & tigers play

Driving through the forest in the empty afternoon
A Japanese car stalled inside a glade
But the world is porcelain
Yes, the world is porcelain

& the quiet nights with the friend who could not stay
Left the future all sundazed

Alice Jude & Laura singing
All our friends have come to stay
They are laughing in the sunlight
Where the criss-cross fountains play

Sunlight on the empty house & sunlight on the fields
The cul-de-sac, the lawn, the tracks, the lane
But the world is porcelain
Yes, the world is porcelain

Still the evening will not come here
& the stones are cracked & warm
& the pool is filled with sunlight
Still the evening will not come
